Oliver Park, 51, ignored safety signs and warnings from wardens and went into a restricted area close to the edge of a cliff.
Mr Park reportedly leaped into the air while attempting to take a ‘flying’ selfie with the mountainous scenery in the background, and slipped backwards down a steep ravine at the historic site.
Rescuers found the body on Thursday and took it to a local police station.
On the same date, also in Peru, a South Korean tourist fell to his death.
